Pitti 2013 as seen by the Journal of Style of Copenhagen

Dear Readers, followers, blog friends and Shoe lovers/Aristocats,

Profound apologies that I was away for some time and left a blog vacuum in the mean time, it was not my intent, but I am here again and will try to update you on a regular base.

The below article was planned to be released in January 2013, but.... so hope you will forgive me for coming with "stale" inspiring Winter news.  

I was glad the other day when I realised that The Journal of Style (Mr. Torsten Grünwald) has made observations of what he saw at Pitti 2013. Surprisingly he focused on the Overcoats worn as capes and he did observe that the monks were still "in". Mr. Grünwald's  observations and photos from Pitti 2013 are very sober and his comments well articulated. Read Pitti Uomo Wear the overcoat as a cape by Mr. Torsten Grünwald from Denmark.

Overcoats at Pitti 2013 as seen by The Journal of Style, very good looking overcoats and some are very impressive indeed.

From The Journal of Style I have sampled only two - the caped overcoat and a double breasted navy classical coat.

Caped Overcoat with fur collar, tartan trousers, a grey odd two button jacket with concealed/covered buttons. White shirt and a greenish wool/cashmere tie. Very majestic looking coat. Cool looking gent with a well groomed beard in the making.
A double breasted navy blue overcoat, light grey 6-4 flannel double breasted suit and monk shoes. White shirt with a navy blue silk tie, perhaps grenadine, not sure. The coat looks great worn as a cape. On the below overcoat I miss the breast pocket for the pocket square. Otherwise a good looking overcoat worn with dignity and grace.

  2. Dear AFJ,

    Thanks for pointing to Mr. Grünwald's blog site ( which is in Danish. The site is most welcome here for the Danish readers, shoe lovers and men who seriously care about classic men's clothing and attire.

    Have a pleasant Sunday.

  3. Excellent read, I just passed this into a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch because I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that.
